Following the recent clarification from Cycling Ulster, our club time trial planned for next Tuesday (13th April) will not be going ahead. We’re expecting some further clarification later in the week, and hopefully we will be starting club races soon.
While we’re waiting, we’ve found a couple of “this week in history” items from the club archives.
First, following our riders’ results in the recent Zwift Tour of the North, here’s a picture of the Ards CC team from the 2004 Tour of the North.
And Chris White shared the start sheet from the second edition of the Champion of Champions 25 mile time trial, which took place 30 years ago this week.
On a windy morning, Phil set the early standard with 54:35. Chris smashed that, and broke the Irish all comers record with 52:05. And Graeme finished with 53:05. It was one win apiece…
Hopefully we’ll see more action on local roads soon. In the mean time stay safe out there!
